Check out the new video – how to make artist’s pigment sticks on my Youtube channel! Yes it was a hot day and my first demonstration so I had to cut out a bit as I went on too long. But these oil-based pigment sticks were great fun to make and the colours turned out to be amazing!
Bear – the German Shepherd
I was commissioned to create this painting of Bear, the German Shepherd who can’t keep out of the water. I’m on a roll with German Shepherds so once again, I focused on the eyes. She has such a gentle expression.
Alan was very pleased with the result and will be meeting his daughter shortly, who owns the lovely Bear, to pass on the portrait. I can’t wait to hear her reaction. Commissioning a dog portrait for a present is such a great idea.
I loved painting one of my favourite dogs, Otto.
His eyes are so expressive and once I had those right, it was easy.
Painted for Otto’s owner, David for his birthday.
